New Work/Development within a Heritage Area - Finalist
Ballarat Fire Station Engine Bay Development, 22 Barkly Street, Ballarat Owner: Ballarat Fire Brigade Architects: Kevin Joy
The Ballarat Fire station was established in 1856 and is one of the oldest operating fire stations in the world. The new development of the engine bay means the brigade will continue to play an important role in providing emergency responses to Ballarat CBD from the East. The new engine bay has had to respond to both local and State heritage controls and has secured the future of the brigade in their original historic home.
